HP C4850 won't print until network status page is printed

Q: HP C4850 won't print until network status page is printed

I have a HP C4850 configured to work through the wireless. I can ping the printer and access its internal web page. Network configuration prints out no fails or errors so as far as I can tell everything is configured correctly. If I send it a print job, a small notepad document with the text "test" in it, it won't print. Eventually it just seems to forget the print job is there. However if I send the job, then print the network device configuration, the print job will print immediately after. I did this 3 times and it was consistent in its behavior. I'm at a complete loss, any ideas?

Hello Everyone,
I have tried searching and searching for this problem but nothing seems to come up with this particularly odd problem. I'm actually running 3rd party software hosted on an AS/400 system but from a Windows 7 32-bit computer. If I right-click the title-bar of the window and select print, the print dialog box comes up asking for the printer I want to use. I select one, then click "Print" and the following comes out on the page....
<See Sample.jpg> (Of course, that's not an actual page, it's a representation of what you'd see on the page, but it's accurate despite the fact that it's color. Anyway, the print screens come out light and don't scan in well.)
As you can see, the print dialog box is clearly visible on the page. This seems to randomly crop up only on Windows 7 boxes and once it starts, we seem to have no way to stop it.

Three days ago when I tried to print from the web and then WORD there was no installed printer. I checked and the printer was still installed but when printing a document the print screen said their was no printer installed. I checked and the print spooler was not working. So I downloaded the Microsoft tool MicrosoftFixit.Printing.Run.exe. I ran it and presto the printer worked but only once and when I went to print again, again the print box showed that there was no printer installed. So I have to run the tool every time I want to print a page then restart the computer. A royal pain and time waster.

Something is turning the spooler off and not allowing individual programs to see the installed printer and therefore reports that there is no installed printer.

2nd issue. this is a new laptop (ACER) and there is no LED light to show "Caps Lock". I did find a setting that flashes the screen and makes an audible beep. However, my wife has the exact same computer and hers has a 2" x 2" box appear each time she puts cap Lock on. Which is way less distracting than audible beeps and flashing screens. Is there a setting for this? I have not found one in the Microsoft website for Windows 7.

In Vista, one print job (the last) on a Lexmark will not delete from the queue. No new print jobs will print out. If there are more jobs created, they add up in the queue. I'm trying not to uninstall and reinstall, this has happened frequently with this printer, albeit with an inexperienced user. Please help. TIA

I have a gradebook that is very different from traditional gradebooks. Each class is a separate file and then each student has their own worksheet so I can individually track their proficiency on a variety of tasks (By all means tell me if this is stupid and recommend an easier way). When I want to print out a students gradebook sheet for a conference, how do I get their name (which is on the tab, to print with the printed page?


A:How do I get Worksheet tabs to print when sheet is printed?


A short answer ...
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterHeader = ActiveSheet.Name
A question though ... would it be somewhat effective to loop through all sheets in a file and do this? Also, how about looping through all files in a folder and doing this? Would it not be easier to do them all at once, or is this a 'one-shot deal'?

Also, btw, you can do this with LeftHeader, RightHeader, LeftFooter, CenterFooter & RightFooter. Other format attributes can also be added if desired.

Hi All,

I dont know if i've got this in the right forum but i've got a WinXP Pro Machine so thought i'd try it here.

The problem is that my print queue seems to retain the print jobs although the print jobs have already been printed out (i've seen it retain jobs from 5 days ago). I happens from all sorts of programs.

My PC is acting a print server (ie, the printer is connected to my PC via Parallel and i have shared my install of this printer).

In the print queue, the status indicates "sent to printer" and Pages "x/x - eg 3/3" however the print jobs remains in the queue and do not disappear unless i manually do a "cancel". If i were to turn off and then on the PC, all these print jobs will print out again without any user interaction.

So, can anyone tell me if this is a driver issue or is it something to do with the printer or Parallel port configuration.

As far as i know, i've got "bi-directional support" selected but i'm still to find out what modes i've got parallel set to eg. EPP or ECP or both.

Any help would be great. thank you.

I'm helping to develop a web application that uses iframes. On the main page (outside of all frames), we have a div that we use to display and print forms. We also have 2 nested iframes; the innermost iframe contains the main page content. When printing, we use extensive CSS and Javascript (contained in the outermost window) to hide everything except the print div.

When I use File > Print Preview, it always displays the correct preview; that is, the outermost window which contains the print div. Printing from the Print Preview works as it should. However, when I use File > Print, it seems to print whatever window has focus, not the entire page (outermost window). Therefore my print div doesn't get printed and all I get is a printout of whatever is currently onscreen. Why doesn't the print out from File > Print match what is shown in the print preview?

A related issue occurs when using JavaScript's window.print(). When I call window.print from within the print div, it prints as it should. But when I call parent.parent.window.print() from within the double-nested iframe, IE still only prints the window that has focus, not the outermost window (as shown by "parent.parent."). And since they just clicked on a button in the innermost frame, the innermost frame has focus, my print div doesn't print and all I get is a printout of whatever is currently onscreen. I have been using "parent.parent" for all other Javascript calls from the nested iframe to th... Read more

I have a home network with an XP system with a printer attached and shared. A Windows 7 laptop and my old XP laptop from work can print fine, but a new Windows 8 laptop won't print. Sharing from the XP system works as I can read files from the XP system on the new Win8 system. When I do an Add Printer on the Windows 8 laptop, I can see the network printer and install it and the driver so the printer shows up as installed on the Win8 system. The Print Test Page does not work nor printing from WordPad. I turned off the Firewall on the XP system in case that was the problem. I don't know what else to try.

Many (most?) web pages have info on left side of screen that I do not want to print (such as at this web site). When I print the page I get the left side panel and letters or words on the right are cut off which I need to fill in by hand.

I recently installed Outlook 2010 and I have got the following strange problem and I was wondering
whether anyone else had the same problem and found a solution.

Whenever I print an Outlook email, the pages come out in reverse order (page 2 then page 1) with a blank cover page which sometimes has "Microsoft Outlook - memo style OUTLOOK.EXE" printed
on the middle of it, and a blank sheet between each page of the message.

It only happens with Outlook. Printing is normal with Word, Excel, etc.

Any suggestions, please?

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, ďThe record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?Ē

Hi all,

This should be an easy one, but I've been banging my head against it for a week. I'm hoping I've just been looking at it to closely and someone can take a look from a different perspective, smack me on the back of head, call me an idiot, and point to the obvious solution.

I'm trying to fix a home network. It consists of one desktop computer, two laptops, and a printer. The desktop is attached to the router by a cable, and has the printer, which is shared, and the laptops are wireless. Everybody is running Windows XP Pro, and this is Lexmark Z45 inkjet.

The problem is with printing. It worked until about a week ago, but now when the laptops send a job to the printer, it just sticks in the queue with the status of printing. The desktop can print, so it doesnít seem to be the printer. The laptops can see the printer, they can connect to the printer, they can send jobs into the queue, but then they just sit there.

Iíve reinstalled the printer on the desktop and the laptops, Iíve downloaded new drivers, Iíve restarted the services, Iíve attached to the share using the computer name as well as just its IP address, Iíve made administrator accounts on the desktop using the same username and password as the laptops use, Iíve made a separate printer account on the desktop and connected using that, and theyíre in the same workgroup.

Hello to all!

It has been a while since this problem first occurred. Now it has become unbearable. When I try to print, use print preview or enter page setup, Microsoft Word 2003 freezes. The same thing also happens with other Office 2003 programs like Microsoft Excel 2003.

I am not sure if there is a problem with my printer driver (the printer is an HP L2600n by the way) as I have reinstalled it many times AND I have no problem using it as a network printer and can print the same word documents FINE from laptops or other desktop computers in the house. Thus I know that the documents aren't corrupted. I can also print .pdf documents fine from this computer. I think this problem started when my laser printer driver 'disappeared' and when I tried to reinstall it I got a spool-related error. I reinstalled the spool driver and then when I tried to print a .doc file I was unable to do so. The problem may most likely be linked to Office 2003 itself but I have tried options like deleting the data key and renaming the template, all which have failed to alleviate the problem.

I think that is all the information I can offer to assist anyone trying to help me with this matter, and I hope that the problem can be fixed without me having to reformat or something like that.

Thank you in advance.

P.S Not sure if this will also come in handy but my OS is Windows XP Professional SP2.

Hi, I just purchased an used computer with Windows 7Home Premium x64, this is an HP Slimline s5610f. The problem that I have is with a Brother HL 2040 series printer. It gave me a really hard time to install the drivers that I downloaded from the Brother website I kept getting a "0x00000057" error and "could not find suitable driver for this printer" error. Finally I decided to take the driver folders for this printer from my wife's computer and copied them to my computer and put them in the drivers repository under System32 and was able to install the printer after that with no problems.

The problem that I have right now is that the printer won't print, even though it told me that the driver installation was successful.

1-the print button is grayed out
2-If I click "printer properties" it tells me that the drivers have not been installed and asks if I want to install them.
3-If I install the drivers at this prompt it tells me that the drivers have been successfully installed.
4-Now it lets me access the printer properties but when I click "print test page" either nothing happens or it tells me that it failed to print and access is denied
5-If i close printer properties and try to access it again it tells me that the printer drivers have not been installed.

I get the same results with the printer connected locally trough USB or on another computer through the network.

I have an HP LaserJet 1020 attached to a WinXP Pro workstation via USB. I have an Intel iMac networked with the PC wirelessly. I can detect the LaserJet on the iMac just fine, and on the iMac, documents spool and even say they have printed (they show up in the "completed" section of the printer control panel).

So, the iMac thinks the document printed, but it never did. When I look at the print queue on the Windows machine, I see "Remote Downlevel Document" in it. I assume that the iMac is printing to a port instead of starting the Windows Print Spooler, and this is why it is showing up with this name.

When viewing the LaserJet's queue on WinXP, the downlevel document is "Printing," and "113k/113k" has been transferred. But the document never prints - if I try to "cancel" the document in the Windows print queue, it says "deleting" for a verrrrry long time. Documents can be printed just fine locally on the Windows workstation.

I have worked out how to set the print area using a macro, but what I want to know is can you make the excel not split the data between pages. So if you have a block of information is there a way to have a macro or VB code that moves the line breaks so that the print area must always keep that block of information on the same page.
Thanks David

A:print area and setting page break to show block of info on same page in Excel

Hi, I guess a macro is the best solution but it must be written, you'll have to calculate the number of rows and columns per block v.s. the page size to set the page break.
This includes margins, header rows and foorter rows.
You could record a macro and then set the blocks of data as you need them.
Stop the recording ans see how it's done, then edit it to suit your purposes and replace the fixed references to dynamic ranges

Hey guys,

You see, every time my client wanted to print out something, he/she usually goes into print preview.

About a month ago, so far only in ebay that I can find, when I would go to certain web pages it would come up as a blank page but say done at the bottom.

I've uninstalled mcafee and ran their uninstall tool. I also ran ccleaner just in case. I then downloaded avast. And I didn't really get the message at first or so I thought.

I searched the Windows Store for an app that would do this and there are none that I can find. Odd because the Android Play Store has dozens of apps that do this. Can anyone tell me if there is an easy way to check battery power from the Start screen?

Click + c, I believe there should be an icon on the clock.

I have a web page which renders different views/ presentation based on the status of the pop-up blocker.
I turned my pop-up blocker on and invoked the page and it gave me the desired view. Then I allowed pop-up for this site by changing the settings from the yellow information bar which appears if the pop-up blocker is enabled.
But since my page is not refreshed, I am still getting the old view which is for the pop-up blocker enabled!

Is there a way I can get a handle on the event which is getting fired when I turn the pop-up blocker off?

BTW, the page is getting refreshed in IE, while changing the pop-up blocker status.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all. I have a Linksys router (ezxs55w) and I am trying to forward some ports. However, I can't access the router status pages at all. I've tried entering into my browser, but it doesn't work (it times out). I've also tried entering the IP address that shows up when I run ipconfig, but the same thing happens.

I am using Windows XP, and the windows firewall. I'm not sure if any other details are needed - if so, please ask.

Well I went out and bought a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO USB Network Adapter. I came home put the CD in to install it and it worked.

My network is set to unknown, and also says unidentified network which is preventing my computer to connect to the internet. If I set my network to home will that fix the situation?

Certain types of outdated hardware will cause these type of problems to occur. Because of this sometimes it's required that you type in the default gateway manually into your IPv4 properties window.

Click Start/Network/Network and Sharing Center. In the left pane select "manage network connections". Right click on your LAN, select properties. Elevate privileges. Uncheck Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder. Hit ok to save your changes.

Disabling the responder tells your Vista to ignore the requests from the other Vista machines on the network to say, "hey, I'm here".

I am at my wits end with a Samsung scx-4623fw laser printer. It works wirelessly for a while but after a week or 2 I get "Network printer status is not available". Troubleshooting doesnt help. If I reinstall the printer it works fine....for another week or two!

I do remember once changing some setting....maybe port...Im not sure. I read somewhere in my online searches about it. I know it was like just a single digit of a difference, but I cant remember now what exactly and its confusing.

i wonder is the problem my router or the printer itself?

many thanks


A:Network Printer status not available-help!

My son had the same problem with a wireless Brother printer, but rather than re-install the printer he simply re-entered the router's wireless key into the printer's setup menu & all was fine again until next time. The problem persisted until he changed the router, since which time the printer has never lost it's network connection.

So it would appear that it depends on your router make & model. They are not all equal in this respect.
I suspect also that some wireless printers are worse than others too when it comes to maintaining a reliable connection.

I have an HP Deskjet 5440 hooked up via USB to my Dell Windows XP machine. I set the printer as "shared", installed the software on my other Windows 98SE computer, and choose that printer as the default on the 98.

I went to test out if it would print over the network, so I choose to print out a small picture. I then went to see if it was printing, which it was, so that meant that it does see the printer and can print to it. However, it was not printing out the picture, but instead about 3 pages of gibberish what looks to be programming language or a huge error.

What could this be and how can I fix it? Thanks.

I am connected to a network and have internet access.

However, the network status icon has a red cross on it as if i am not connected. Even more strange is if i hover over the icon its read "Network Internet access"

I don't use any third party connection software and don't have any third party firewalls running.

I am plugged in direct to the router with an ethernet cable.

This isn't a massive problem but i'd prefer the icon not to have the red cross on it.

I have been printing happily from my Vista laptop through a printer attached to my XP pc for some time. Now, suddenly, the laptop shows the printer status as ERROR consistently. Also, nothing happens when I attempt to cancel the document other than a never ending DELETING message which eventually goes away leaving the same 1 document and ERROR as before. The printer menu on the XP pc shows ready and 0 documents at the same time as the laptop shows the error message. I uninstalled the printer on the laptop and re-installed it only to have the first test page give the error status again. The printer works fine from the XP pc and both laptop and pc have printer sharing checked. What has gone wrong and how do I fix it?

If you are running a terminal server environment. This is normally dependant on the size of your company. you can just remote desktop (RDP) and see what they are doing. you could instead use teamviewer and set it up on all of your employees pc's install "for the instant customer" on their pc's and have it run in the background and on your pc install the full version. set for personal use. so that they dont know it is running at startup you can always go to taskbar and startmenu properties (right click go to properties on the start bar and then tick hide inactive icons and customise to hide teamviewer. You can also control their pc's this way.
TeamViewer Download

Or you could install a proxy on the server that I assume you would have and then you can see every site that they visit on the network - look at installing squid 3 in a virtual machine environment. - only took me a few days to figure out (its in linux so you need some know how)

I have an application that establishes a socket connection w/ another application on a different machine. When this connection is disrupted (e.g., pull out network cable), I recognize this condition and take some action.

In a Windows XP 32-bit environment, this happens quickly ... in seconds.

In a Windows 7 64-bit environment, this happens slowly ... in about 5 minutes.

If I run netstat in the W7 environment, the TCP connection shows ESTABLISHED for about 5 minutes after the network cable has been unplugged. (In WXP, it changes in seconds.)

I've searched the forum and have heard a few people refer to 5 minutes as being a "default" timeout value. I've also looked at the TCP spec, etc. to learn a bit more, understand it better, etc. in an attempt to find something I can configure to reduce the 5 minutes to seconds but I've not run into anything yet.



A:TCP ESTABLISHED status even after network cable unplugged

I found documentation for a registry entry named TcpTimedWaitDelay for the TCP/IP service. It describes the default to be 240 seconds (4 minutes) and suggests it be set to 30.

In the W7 environment, this entry was not set so I added it and restarted the machine. This did not work.

I have a IOGEAR single port USB print server connected to a Netgear 614v4 wireless router. The printer connected to the print server is a HP 7150 Photosmart. I have two computers connected to the wireless router via 820.11g on this LAN. All other functions work fine, except for printing using one of the computers.

My laptop (VAIO PCG-F590) runs Windows XP Pro, and it works just fine in all respects. I can print any document with good speed to the printer using the full Office Suite. And, as directed, it begins printing immediately after spooling. That is, it does not wait until all pages have spooled.

The other computer is a Compag Presario 7360 desktop connected using a Netgear 820.11g PCI card. This computer runs Windows XP Home, and all LAN functions appear to work normally, albeit not as fast as the laptop. I can print anything, from any program, as long as it is one page long. The test pages all print wonderfully. I can print any document of any length if I print directly from IE. However, when I go to print a document (same document as above) using Word, Wordpad, or Notepad, the printer always ultimately comes back and says it is out of paper, which it is not of course. Notably, although having the same settings the printer does not begin printing immediately after spool either.
Any ideas?

Of 3 users on W7 system one is unable to print any web page within IE (V 9.05). Print Preview shows blank page. Print will print just a blank page. Both of the other users can print web pages from within IE just fine. Note the problem account is able to print web pages from Firefox, just not IE.

Any help will be appreciated.

I wanted to print this page out so I can follow the instructions without having to go back to my computer or the website each time.

I've tried and had friends try and I even went to the library to try and print it out.
It will print the first page but the second page become garbled and all other pages only print the websites title and url nothing more.

I'm thinking maybe the page is set up to disallow printing.

A:This page won't print the way it's laid out

I converted it to a pdf file, using primopdf (a free software) and it gives a five page document, which can then be printed. Did not try MS word.

If I understand correctly, you want to print a web page? If that is what you are asking use the snipping tool. Just type that in search. If nothing comes up in search, just means the feature is new for Windows 7 and not part of vista.

i used to use Epson's Web-to-page utility that allowed one to preview, select and print directly from the web without all the borders, sidebars, ads, etc. but it's not designed for explorer 7 and there are SOOO many problems if you try it. does anyone know of an alternative program out there?

Windows XP, Explorer 8. Long URLs are truncated when printing web pages. Page setup does not have an option addressing printing the ENTIRE URL. Have searched the web, where question has been asked by others, but answers have not provided a solution. Changing margins does not do it. Years ago had same problem, and I think there was something that permitted adding more lines to the footer. Would appreciate an answer.

Thank you for your attention.

A:How to print ENTIRE web page URL

Did you try in Landscape mode ? How long is the URL ? Anyway, here is my finding on this.

I was checking on the options in Firefox to see if there is a solution. Excuse me if you are looking for IE-only solution. Hope others will find this useful.

1) Page Setup option in Firefox
You can add a custom text or change what to be shown in Header/Footer and it can be aligned left/center/right.
Change what to be shown and select "URL" in the Center option.
And now the print page shows the long URL in full page width.

I tested with the sign-in URL that you see when you visit and it shows the full URL in the center of the page.

Another option is to use the "Print Edit" add-on recommended in the above link. It lets you edit the webpage before printing. So you could try pasting the URL somewhere in the body.

I have recently upgraded from XP to 8.1. Nightmare. I have dozens of issues but the main one exercising me at the moment is how to print only the first page of an email. I cannot find any options to do this. If there is an email thread extending to 34 pages, I only want to print the first page. Any suggestions please?

A:How do I print only one page of an email?

hi,and welcome to eightforums ,its been a while since I had a printer install on my computer ,but I would assume it would work the same as xp ,when I had xp and a printer ,if I chose to print a multi page document ,when the printer dialog box came up it would show how many pages and I could choose by changing the number listed in the box to the number of pages I wanted to print ,

having said that yours maybe different ,or printer option boxes may have changed sinc I last had a printer ,;also you might want to tell us what email program are you using and what kind of printer you have

I am merging an excel file into word labels and all is good except the merge only takes the first 30 names to fit on 1 page of 5160 labels. I thought that maybe the page just didn't show up so I did the tab thing, but the names are not there. Only 30 names merge to make 1 page. I am using XP Professional. A co-worker said that she had the same problem and gave up. I don't want to give up so here I am. Thanks for any help that you can offer. Liz

Strangest problem. Would love help!!
Etradeís portfolios list prints minus 4-5 columns from our HP laptop to the printer connected. I have used Explorer, Firefox and Chrome and they all print the same. On Print Preview they are all there and look normal. I tried selecting all and printing selection but it still left out these columns. I have also copy and pasted to Word and it left out the same columns when printed. I installed on Chrome and Firefox an add-on that is called print/edit but that didnít do it. I updated the printer (Epson Stylus NX420) driver, but that didnít do it. I saved as a pdf and opened in Adobe, but again no luck

On my other computer which is a PC, it prints fine on my Epson Stylus CX 6000 using either Explorer or Firefox so itís not an Etrade website setup problem.

The laptop runs Windows Vista Home Premium.. I have Windows 7 professional on my PC.

I am totally puzzled. This page on Etrade used to print from the laptop to this printer without this problem.
Oh and I also changed an ink cartridge which was getting low but not out of ink

I have reinstalled my printer following a system crash.

Now I cannot print any web pages, yet I am able to print from word, and notepad.

I'm running XP, and IE7

When I select a web page to print, the printer spouts out around 8 pages of computer jargon, somethin like a HJT log.(I don't know how else to explain it)

When I do a letter in word, notepad, it prints the document, no problem.

Any advice please?
